How to block ads on Android devices

There is probably not a person in this world that owns a smart phone and has never gotten annoyed by all the ads popping up across the screen of his mobile device. That is why we are going to show you how to block some of the advertisements (unfortunately, not all of them) on your Android device.

How to block ads on Android devices using Adaway apk!


Blocking ads on your Android can be done by using an application which we will introduce and describe in the paragraph after this one. But, before starting, you should know that the application in question works only on rooted Android devices. So make sure your Android is rooted before you download and install the app for blocking ads on Android. If you are not familiar with the term “root” or want to know more about rooting, please check one of our recent posts: Rooting Your Android

Once you know all this, let’s talk about the app that allows you to block ads. The app is called “Adaway” and you can easily find it in the Play Store if you just type its name in the search box. Once you have found it, download and install it on your Android device. Open it and you will see a message saying that Adaway is requesting Superuser access. Allow that in order for the application to work properly. After you have done that, the app is going to start checking for an update. Once it has found it and made the update available, click on “Download file and apply ad blocking”.

After a few seconds, you are going to see a message informing you that applying was successful. It may be necessary to reboot the device for the changes to take effect, so click on “Yes” in order to reboot.

Now the process is over and you are going to be able to enjoy your Android device with a lot less ads. This application does not block each and every single ad in absolutely all apps. For example, sometimes it does not work in some games and other applications, but it pretty much blocks all of the ads on your web browser and helps you browse the web more comfortably.
